I’m what you’d call a bread addict. Whether we’re talking about a warm, chewy bagel or a loaf of dark pumpernickel, I don’t discriminate. Though they contain no yeast, popovers fall into this category and they’re at the top of my list. For those of you that haven’t bitten into what’s essentially a piece of fluffy air, you’re really missing out. I found the recipe on Orangette (adapted from The Bread Bible), and I must say, I was pretty impressed that they not only rose, but were light and flavorful. To really bring it home, I whipped up some strawberry butter (by beating together 1/2 cup of butter with 1/2 cup strawberry preserves) and it was the perfect touch for an indulgent breakfast.
